This Sunday, October 18, is the 32nd anniversary of the founding of the Priestly Fraternity of St. Peter. We thank God for all the graces received and especially for such supportive faithful.
Special graces and indulgences are received by those who join our Confraternity of St. Peter, which is a sodality of members who wish to unite themselves to the Priestly Fraternity of St. Peter and aid in the work of our Fraternity, primarily by their prayers. You can learn more and enroll yourself at: fssp.com/enroll-in-the-confraternity/.
Fr. Dorsa will be away from October 19-27 to make his canonical retreat and to attend the conferral of Tonsure, this coming Saturday (Oct 24, 11am) on our second year seminarians, which include our local vocations- Jose Fernandez and Danny Battis. Please pray for Father's retreat, and for the seminarians who will receive the cassock for the first time as tonsured clerics. The ceremony can be viewed via livestream here.
As there will be one priest present at masses during this time, confessions will only be heard before masses, sometimes afterwards if time allows, and by appointment.
Sunday, October 18th, is World Mission Sunday, in which an extra collect is added "pro fidei propagatione" for the propagation of the Catholic Faith throughout the world, without which it is impossible to please God (Hebr 11.6), and go to heaven (Mk 16.16).
Please remember this intention in your prayers at mass and in this month dedicated to the Holy Rosary.
For those who would like to donate to the mission work of the diocese of Venice, which helps missions on a local and international level, one can deposit a check made out to Corpus Christi Chapel in the normal Sunday collection whether at mass or by mail, earmarked for "Mission Sunday" and it will be forwarded to the diocesan office for the said purpose.
His Excellency, The Most Rev. Frank Dewane, Bishop of the Diocese of Venice, FL, in his most recent decree (11.20.20) has extended the dispensation of attending Sunday and Holyday Masses through the new year. Present restrictions of spacing, face masks, etc. remain in force. Nevertheless, now in this advanced phase of reopening, His Excellency encourages those who can and who are not at risk to attend mass regularly. Please continue to signup in advance only for the 845am Sunday Mass per the instructions in the previous announcement.
Next weekend two distinct rosary rallies are being held
Saturday, Oct 10th from 10am to 11am, at the north-east corner of Pine Ridge and 41 in Naples, organized by the Solidarity Rosary Walk
Sunday, Oct 11th, from 3pm to 4pm at St. Agnes Catholic Church, before the Blessed Sacrament (in the main church, led by Fr. Kris) organized by Rosary Coast to Coast
Both Rosary Rallies are being offered for the triumph of good and the vanquisihing of evil in our country so much in need or prayer.
This Wednesday, Oct 7, is the Feast of Our Lady of the Most Holy Rosary, and we will have a Sung Mass at 515pm.
All are invited to attend these powerful, prayerful events.
Per the previous announcement, regarding the resumption of adoration at St. Agnes, during the day from 9am-345pm, the proximate goal is to reestablish nightly adoration on Monday to Saturda (which will take place in the little adoration chapel of the Church). The following times must still be filled to be able to extend it perpetually:
Saturday: 12am-1am, 4am-5am
If one is able to habitually cover one of these hours please sign up on the St. Agnes website. The date of comencement of the evening-night hours will be announced after the slots are filled.
One of our dear cantors, Miss Katie Walton, will be entering the traditional Carmel of Jesus, Mary, and Joseph in Post Falls, Idaho on October 15th. Let us keep her in our prayers as she takes this first step toward becoming a bride of Christ in the footsteps of St. Theresa of Avila. She assures us that our community will always remain in her prayers. She and her roommates will host an informal open house for those who would like to say good bye and wish her well on Sunday, October 4th from 11am to 4pm (1630 Nottingham Dr., Naples). Feel free to stop by at any time to have a bite to eat, drink, and leave prayer intentions for her as well. If any want to bring any snacks or drinks to share they are most welcome.
(UPDATE 10.3) The previous request to help with any debts she had has been met and the car has been sold. She will keep her benefactors especially in her prayers. May God reward their charity.
Since Katie must be free of debts and possessions to enter, she would be most grateful for any charity to help pay off the last portion of her college loans. She is also hoping to sell her car (a 2015 Corolla) to a friend rather than a dealership. Since she does not hope to make profit on the sale, the price would be dependent on what is needed to pay off the last of her debts (around 7-8k at this point). Any money she might receive over and above her debt will be donated to CCC's building fund. If you wish to contact her she can be reached at [email protected] or visit www.gofundme.com/last-gifts
We are preparing to order giving envelopes for all parishioners for 2021. If there is any household that would prefer not to have a box, if they manage their giving online for example, please let us know by this Tuesday, Sept. 29- [email protected]
We thank you all for your regular, generous giving which will make your future parish home possible. Check out our website for more info https://www.corpuschristifssp.com/build
Daily Exposition of Blessed Sacrament at St. Agnes Chapel (NOW INCLUDING SATURDAYS beginning Sept 26)- Please wear a mask while at common hours of adoration
Beginning Tuesday, September 8, Nativity of the Blessed Vigin Mary, the parish of St. Agnes will resume Eucharistic exposition and adoration, Monday-Saturday, from 9am - 345pm, in the chapel, NOT in the small adoration chapel of the main church, but in the same chapel we use for our Latin masses. Corpus Christi Chapel will be responsible for the adoration from 3pm-345pm on Mon-Fri, imparting Benediction before our daily 4pm mass. We thus need to have at least 5 adorers present from 3pm till 345pm. Please sign up for this 3pm hour or any other hour at which all are free to visit or sign up by clicking here. As indicated on the signs at the entrance to the chapel, one must wear a mask while in the chapel at the hours of adoration in common. Any other questions regarding the adoration hours can be directed to [email protected]
One of our parishioners, Mr. Reno Anselmi, is offering discounted auto service or repairs to fellow Corpus Christi members. Please contact him directly regarding any details at 239-207-6467
